Been offered The El Tope (Thomson Gold) in Puerto De La Cruz for my parents. Dad hasn't been well and we're looking for something nice. Does anyone know it?

LadyTraveller :
"The El Tope is a nice enough hotel. Its a Thomson Gold (not suitable for kids under 16 years of age) There are some reviews here. I do however have a few reservations. The El Tope is on a hill. there are around 120 steps down to town (and back again). Making it totally unsuitable for anyone with any mobility problems. There is a free bus service but it depends on times etc and I'm sure they don't run at night if they do it's infrequent. It is also quite an older style of hotel and in my opinion, in need of refurbishment. Also, you need to know that Puerto de la Cruz is a very nice resort, it is hilly. Theres no beach to speak of and if they want to be at the seafront, then they'd be using the public lido which costs money to use. The weather in Puerto because it's in the north of Tenerife can be cooler and wetter than the sunnier drier south. If you're looking at the Thomson idea- they have some Platinum hotels in the south. I'd reccomend Bahia Princess/Guyarmina Princess/Tenerife Princess. Check out Thomson pricebreakers which can be cheaper but only g'tees they'll be in one of the Platinum hotels in that area- worth a look though. Good luck!"

"La Palma is one of the least known Canary Islands and is one of the smaller Canary Islands. There's no mass-tourism here. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this friendly, green island. Santa Cruz de La Palma is the capital of the island and is situated on the east coast close to the airport. See for more details"
Snowman1234 :
"It's quite good, but i think you can do better. Have a look and compare it to these hotels, which you can sort by price, location and star rating: Puerto de la Cruz:http://www.cheaperthanhotels.co.uk/Spain/Tenerife-Island/Puerto-de-la-Cruz/"
Mimoso P :

I'm heading to Tenerife, Canary Islands, but I want to stay most of the time in Puerto de la Cruz. Where can I go, any special tips? Any good budget hotel?

goldilocks :
"Hi, you could try asking on here: they are a very friendly bunch and will probably be able to help you with accomodation, etc. I'm going myself in a weeks time, but will be staying in Calleo Salvaje on the West Coast. Puerto de la Cruz is the island's capital, so there should be lots to do. Enjoy yourself!"
piksychick :
"I was just in Puerto. I made a blog about my trip with tons of great info. As for budget hotels, look for places called "pensiones". Check it out at "
maidelyn2001 :

I'm going to be staying in Los Cristianos at the end of february and would like to go up to Puerto de la Cruz for a daytrip to visit the lido (went there as a kid and want to see if it is as good as I remember!). Any suggestions on the best way to travel for three people? I'd prefer not to hire a car - public transport or taxi maybe. As long as costs are reasonable I'd go for speed and comfort over cost!

"There is a good bus service to P.de la C. and all over the island. Click on the web-link below for a down load map of routes."
yvonnea65 :
"There is an express bus that goes there. I cannot remember the number ( it might be the 110 or 111) but you can get is at the bus stops on the road that the hotel princess dacil is on. This is the main bus stop in los christianos. It takes about 1hr to get there. You can also go to loro parque which is a brilliant zoo which has penguins in an enclosed area with real snow falling."

People who have taken flights to Tenerife in the Canary Islands recently might have mistakenly thought they'd landed up in San Francisco, as a full scale film set of the US city came to Puerto de la Cruz. A film production team set up camp in the north of Tenerife to film The Passenger, the moving tale of a young widow returning home to Russia.

Por lo espectacular de la vista que ofrece, el glaciar Perito Moreno es considerado la octava maravilla del mundo. La imponente masa de hielo interminable rodeada de bosques y montañas es un espectáculo que pocos se quieren perder.De hecho, este lugar es, junto con Puerto Madryn (en Chubut) y las Cataratas del Iguazú (en la provincia norteña de M
